A few things I’ve accomplished in my work today on my website, content distribution, and social media while chillin’ out at the library: I changed my blog icon, added a facebook page widget, some scan codes for Kik and Facebook Messenger, and also added a link for my latest newsletter all in my website sidebar. I also signed up with MailChimp to be able to provide a monthly email for those who wish to be notified by email about my latest newsletters, however I learned that the only option for the sign up form is a pop up, and just like I’m sure most of my visitors hate pop up’s, so do I…. so I decided for now to leave the only option for viewing my newsletters to a link I will provide in my website sidebar and my social media. I will wait until wordpress provides an option for embedded sign up forms, or I will check at a later time to see if MailChimp can provide a sign up page that I could link to.
Speaking of newsletters, I’m still working on the October issue. I have a feeling that October will be near over before I get it finished.
I’m still in chill mode regarding blog posts and scheduling and still have no plans to start posting new official images until around December, or possibly January, however I will be putting new images in my upcoming newsletters.
I have started, as an effort to keep my photo content alive, a “photo of the day” daily feature of my prior posted photos, and these will of course be included in the Tweetlog portion of my monthly newsletters. My plan from here on out is to keep those in rotation starting with the first one I posted and go in sequence. Once I reach the end of the sequence I will just start them over. I think this will be a great way to keep my content from going stale.
In other news I recently bought a cheap lifecam. It takes really crappy pictures, but my first experience with it was fun. I’m sure I will use it a lot. I will be putting together a new ebook called Lifecam which will contain photos from my first outing with the device which was a hike on Bartram’s Trail in Tuskegee, AL. I may finish it today, but maybe not. It depends on whether I decide to go for a lake outing once I get out of the library today… which will be right after I publish this post. I had actually planned on putting it together while I was at the library, but I got busy doing all the other things I’ve mentioned today and now I’m out of time. Gotta go 🙂 Have a great day!!
